A children's Welsh-themed costume competition also took place, with Jacob Williams, who is less than a month old, winning first prize. His mum Rebecca Lloyd, said: "He is only 16 days old. My mum made him his first St David's Day costume, so we are really chuffed."
Shirley Price, from Penllergaer-based Millies Market, which sells handcrafted items, including a Welsh language range, said: "I had a really great time and I did really well.
"It was a lovely day and I managed to do a lot of marketing with flyers.
"Everyone seemed to have a good time.
"I am one of the organisers of the Gorseinon Food Festival so I was asking people about the food. A lot of people were saying good things about the pizza."
Clare Phillips, from the Little Welsh Deli, which is based in Grovesend, said she was really pleased to be part of the event.
"It is the third year we have done it," she said. "It went really well and there was a great atmosphere and a great crowd.
"The weather was also lovely, which helped too."
South Wales Evening Post commercial director Lisa Cameron said the day was another great success.
"It was a lovely day and went really well," she said. This is our seventh year of Get Welsh and the event is going from strength to strength.
"It brings people in the city centre and also supports local businesses and produce."
